Buncheong Ware Ancient and Modern
Unfortunately, the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic prevented the planned “Meissen meets Korea” exhibition from being held. You do not need to miss it altogether, though.
You are invited to attend a virtual presentation entitled “Essence of Korean Aesthetics – Buncheong Ware Ancient and Modern”. The art of Buncheong flowered more than 500 years ago on the Korean peninsula.
The Korea Foundation is joining with the Ghana Foundation for Arts and Culture to promote the exchange of ideas on Korea and her culture with this online presentation.
So many shades and hues on porcelain. Three centuries of colour at Meissen
18 July 2020 to 22 November 2020
1720 saw the arrival at the Meissen Manufactory of Johann Gregorius Höroldt and, with him, quite a bit of new colour. His name is synonymous with the development of fusible colours (“enamels”) and the advent of European porcelain painting. The Manufactory’s colour portfolio has risen to a massive 10,000 formulae in the 300 years that have passed since Höroldt’s arrival in Meissen. Porcelains from three centuries demonstrate just how many shades and hues the earliest sixteen colour formulae have given rise to in the meantime.
Paul Scheurich. Porcelain modeller, draughtsman, graphic artist
6 March 2020 to 21 February 2021
Paul Scheurich (* 1883 New York, † 1945 Brandenburg) was one of the most important porcelain modellers in the first half of the 20th century. Our theme exhibition marking the 75th anniversary of his death delves into his life and work.
Scheurich’s porcelain designs for Meissen and other German manufactories, augmented by rare bronze statues, drawings, illustrations and commercial art by the artist, yield a multifaceted portrait of the man.
